So this was done by the people our illustrious President Barack H. Obama wants to send arms to.

Syrian rebels beheaded a Christian man and fed his body to dogs, according to a nun who says the West is ignoring atrocities committed by Islamic extremists.

The nun said taxi driver Andrei Arbashe, 38, was kidnapped after his brother was heard complaining that fighters against the ruling regime behaved like bandits.

She said his headless corpse was found by the side of the road, surrounded by hungry dogs. He had recently married and was soon to be a father.

Sister Agnes-Mariam de la Croix said: ‘His only crime was his brother criticised the rebels, accused them of acting like bandits, which is what they are.’

There have been a growing number of accounts of atrocities carried out by rogue elements of the Syrian Free Army, which opposes dictator Bashar al-Assad and is recognised by Britain and the West as the legitimate leadership.

“Rogue elements”? I’d say that they’re proving to be who they’ve always been.

Do you want to know just how far off Obama’s policies are from where we were just a few years ago?

On September 14, 2001, Congress overwhelmingly passed a joint resolution called the Authorization to Use Military Force, or AUMF. That joint resolution authorized President George W. Bush and his successors, including Barack Obama, to use military force against al Qaeda. Three days before the AUMF passed, al Qaeda had murdered nearly 3,000 Americans in a mass terrorist attack.

Here we are in 2013. President Barack Obama wants the AUMF repealed. He blames one al Qaeda-linked terrorist attack on a movie. He calls another terrorist attack on American soil “workplace violence.”

Is al Qaeda dead?

No, in Syria alone they have 10,000 militants at war and they’re beheading people who criticize them. And Barack Obama is intent on arming them.
